BitMEX exchange hits $1 trillion in Bitcoin trading volume following Bitcoin's parabolic advance

The parabolic advance that started on April 2, caused a lot of FOMO, pushing the price as high as $13,800; the rally ended on June 26, and it has been a slow day ever since.

BitMEX, one of the most famous leverage trading exchanges, known for its Bitcoin perpetual contract, surged with traders trying to profit from the rally. Subsequently, the rally blindsided a lot of traders causing massive liquidations of shorts.
